IBM, Google Team to Seed Massive Computing Cloud

IBM and Google disclosed on an initiative the two technology heavyweights hope will help computer science students and researchers learn more about and gain experience in what has come to be known as “cloud computing.” Ultimately, the goal is to create a new generation of software developers able to write software that will fully take advantage of the capabilities of parallel computing. Google is “excited to partner with IBM to provide resources which will better equip students and researchers to address today’s developing computational challenges,” said the company’s CEO Eric Schmidt.
